The only behind the scenes story I can remember of closed door sparring was Anderson beating Vitor in training and in a championship fight.

I don't think Luke is really that good at all though. He's gonna be mid tiered once he enters the eight sided cage.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

So first it was with Bisping the winner of Belfort/Bisping should be the number one contender.

Then it was the winner of Belfort/Bisping should be the MW interim champion.

Finally screw the UFC crap he should be the Strikeforce champion.

On one hand he's a delusional twit, on the other-hand he did win the Ultimate Fighter by beating Matt Hamill in practice.

BTW ofcourse he wants Larkin/Rockhold winner in the UFC guy knows Jacare will destroy him.

You bring up a very valid point. I forgot that Luke was injured, so what was he doing training/sparring?

Bisping Vs Belfort SHOULD be for the number 1 contender spot. And with this Strikeforce stuff, man do you guys have ANY banter? He's not saying he should actually be the Strikeforce champ. It's like when I have a decent spar with my karate sensei and I joke to my mate "Next week I think I'll be taking the class". Bisping is defending his spot because he thinks Rockhold might get an instant title shot like Diaz did, and he's trying to put him in his place, all the while making the joke about being the new Strikeforce champ.

Come on guys, don't let you hatred make you stupid.

I think it's conditional, but I would be okay with that in light of the Weidman injury. But see he didn't stop at that he also wants to be the interim middle champion and the Strikeforce champion. If he ever did get a title shot I'm sure he'll insist on being inducting into the Hall of Fame first.

Yes it could be banter but I see it more as pathetic and a transparent attempt at running down people who didn't take years to beat a top ten MW.

Diaz didn't get an instant shot, he fought BJ Penn then he fought Condit for an interim belt. Though it's fairly clear that the SF HW (both of them), LHW, WW, and LW champions are all in the title mix. But the MW guy, that guy should just be happy to have a job.

Bisping maybe a douche but the fact that every horrible attention seeking annoying thing he does elicits apologists is getting crazy.

Bisping can be funny sometimes.

But his title aspirations are about to meet an ugly end.

Actually Nick did get a title shot. He no showed a press conference and as punishment his title shot was given to Condit who was facing Penn at the time. Then GSP hurt his knee and so Diaz fought Penn, Condit was off the show. He pulverized Penn like a red headed step child and then got the shot for interim gold.

As for Luke I would assume his cast had been removed and he was trying to see if he was ready for a fight obviously not if Bisping gets the better of you.
